Fraxel treatment is a new laser treatment to help remove sun damage, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Fraxel treatments vary in aggressiveness, downtime, number of procedures needed and results. For a more aggressive treatment, Fraxel can produce dramatic improvement for severely damaged skin in a single procedure. However, this will require more downtime and after treatment wound care. Less aggressive treatments can produce significant results for mild to moderately damaged skin over the course of 3-6 treatments. There is no after treatment wound care with these treatments and downtime is very minimal.
How does it work? Fraxel touches up small fractions of your facial tissue, spending close detail and attention to the smallest one-tenth of a diameter of a hair follicle. The laser columns stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out, which replaces damaged tissue with younger, smoother, healthier skin.
Fraxel is for everyone, regardless of age, sex or skin color. The cost of Fraxel ranges from $800 to $1500 depending on the kind of treatment and frequency of procedures. It also depends on geographic location of your dermatologist. For a complete information consultation, please visit your local dermatologist today.
